OK I tried building with the last nights CVS Head of Forrest and the 
most recent snapshot of FOP. First of all I got the problem with 
skinconf recently discussed on this list. So I patched your Skinconf.xml 
file (sent offlist)

Then I had a problem with your sitemap.xmap. It doesn't parse correctly. 
I was going to patch this but there is a large number of customisations 
all over the place so didn't even try. I just thought I'd give it a go 
with the default Forrst sitemap (I renamed your
old one to get it out of the way, also renamed the 0.5 version of the 
sitemap that was in there).

This worked OK.

Your breadcrumbs are correct and the site look fine with "forrest run".

What you need to do is verify that any needed customisations in your 
original xmap are copied across (I've not looked to see if any are 
actually needed).

You have to have either site.xml or book.xml. sitemap.xmap is nothing to 
do with these files, it manages how the site is built.

I should have read your mail properly before starting. I didn't try the 
above with this branch.

Try the above, if it doesn't work I'll have another look using the 
maintenance version of FOP.
